Hi Alois,

I believe I am modern defender. My paddle consist Dr Nuebauer firelpus (balsa), Butterfly tenergy 05 1.09 sponge and Dawei 833 d-1 ox. When my opponent backspin push or topspin to my backhand  (long pips rubber) I push back the most time, except when the ball is high then I punch it.

I am thinking replacing the the dawei 833 d-1 ox with tibhar grass dtech long pips with .05 sponge. I am not sure about the thickness. 

Thanking you in advance.

Hi Rodrigo,

With a thin sponge you will gain some more control for the attacking ball but the effect will be less.

It will allow you to attack a little easier off the lower backspin balls as well.  It is worth a try and see if you are comfortable with it.  That is really the only way to tell if it is going to work for you.
